Bishop Shanahan High School will host its sixth annual College Fair on Tuesday, Sept. 25 from 7–9 p.m. in the school gymnasium. Over 90 universities and colleges from 18 states plus the District of Columbia will have admissions representatives on hand to speak with prospective students regarding admission, majors, financial aid and student life.
Some local colleges attending include: Villanova University, Drexel University, Pennsylvania State University, West Chester University, St. Joseph’s University, Temple University, LaSalle University, Immaculata University, Bucknell University, Widener University and Cabrini College, among many others.
Some out-of-state colleges attending are: George Washington University, Johnson & Wales University, The Catholic University of America, Loyola University New Orleans, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, University of Massachusetts, University of Alabama, Towson University, UNC Charlotte, Providence College, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University of South Carolina, James Madison University, Old Dominion University and West Virginia University, among many others.
Just as high school juniors and seniors begin another school year, many of them will start preparations to select a college or university that best meets their needs. College visits can be a daunting task.
“This college fair was designed to accommodate financial strictures during a difficult time in our economy,” said Marie Weyback, moderator of the college fair. “This affords parents and students the luxury of ‘visiting’ colleges and universities all across the country in one evening, while making lasting connections with college officials.”
